Maybe We Should Just Say "Good Tools"

Quotes from Ted Leung...

"One of the points that I've been trying to make since I've gotten
back in to the languages space is that a lot of what is happening in
languages now is unpausing the nuclear winter that Java imposed on the
programming language space. If you haven't been following this space
for a while, you'd believe that all this dynamic language stuff was
invented in the last 5 or 10 years or so."

"Maybe we should just say "good tools" instead of IDE, since a number
of people that I've talked to seem to think that in order to be an
IDE, the tool has to be huge, written in Java, and include feature for
generating reams of boiler plate code..."
